Opportunity Weeks

Wharton MBA Opportunity Weeks provide students with valuable time to explore unique programming throughout the semester, both credit-bearing and extracurricular. Scheduled at several intervals throughout the academic year, students have the opportunity to explore domestic and international programming that would not otherwise be available during the semester. These periods can be found within the 2021-2022 academic calendar.

Existing programs, such as Global Immersion Programs, Global Modular Courses and Leadership Ventures will utilize Opportunity Weeks. We are actively working to finalize programming for the upcoming year, being mindful of COVID-19 restrictions and protocols. Please check our page as well as the respective programs periodically for more information. All programs are subject to change or cancellation.

If you have any questions, please reach out to Dominique Liuzzo (liuzzo@wharton.upenn.edu) for more information.
